1.ASUS 24″ 1080P

Pros & Cons

The display size, also known as viewable image size (VIS) is the physical size of the area where videos are displayed – not the monitor case itself. The size of a screen is the length of its diagonal, which is the distance between opposite corners, usually in inches. Check our compare monitors page to see other monitors this size at a larger range of prices.

When it comes to the all important specs the max screen resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels, the refresh rate is 165 Hz, and the response time is 0.5 ms. This is a 1080p Asus monitor and can run at 165 Hz.

2.ASUS VP28UQG 28″

Pros & Cons

The Asus VP28UGQ’s circular (9-inch/228.6mm diameter) plastic stand has rings all around it, like an old tree trunk. But unlike a tree trunk, it doesn’t feel very thick, and the monitor can get a little wobbly when typing aggressively.

Thankfully, the monitor didn’t seem like it was in danger of falling over. The stand allows for a 5 degree backward tilt or 20 degrees forward. There is no height adjustments or portrait mode. If you don’t like the stand, you can use the Asus VP28UGQ with a 100 x 100mm VESA wall mount.

4.LG 27QN600-B 27”

This 27″ monitor supports a 2560 x 1440 QHD resolution and features an IPS (In-Plane Switching) HDR10 panel that shows 16.7 million colors covering 99% of the sRGB spectrum for vivid and realistic colors. It also has AMD FreeSync technology built-in, which helps to reduce stuttering, screen tearing, and motion blur during fast action games when connected to a compatible graphics card.

You can adjust the screen’s tilt to optimize comfort or install the monitor onto a wall, a monitor arm, or multi-monitor stand using the 100 x 100mm VESA mounting holes.


Pros & Cons

The Samsung CRG9 is a good super ultrawide monitor. Its 32:9 aspect ratio provides plenty of space for an immersive gaming experience and allows you to work comfortably with multiple windows opened side-by-side. It has good reflection handling and gets very bright, enough to overcome glare with ease. Fast-moving scenes look clear and smooth, as it has a high refresh rate and quick response time, and it supports variable refresh rate technology to reduce screen tearing.

Unfortunately, despite having a VA panel, its contrast ratio is only decent, and its edge-lit local dimming doesn’t improve black level by much. Also, black uniformity is bad on our unit, although your experience may vary. Viewing angles are sub-par; however, the screen’s curvature helps with visibility on the sides. Lastly, it can deliver a pretty good HDR experience thanks to its wide color gamut and high peak brightness.


Best 1440p 120hz Gaming Monitors – In recent years, 1440p monitors have become extremely popular for gaming. They have a low enough resolution that decent performance is achievable without an extremely expensive gaming computer, yet are high enough resolution that you can see more fine details in your favorite games. They aren’t just for PC gaming anymore; 1440p is supported by the Xbox One, making a 1440p monitor an attractive alternative for students who don’t have enough room for a full-size TV.
